There is a lot that I don’t know about in this life, but there is one thing I do know a lot about, shopping. For thirty-something years, I have lived in the world of four women. There are very few stores, malls, outlets, and shopping centers that we have not been in. Everything we’ve done generally turned into a shopping trip. There is a lot of space in big department stores and usually more than three fourths of the store is given over to women’s clothes and stuff. I can’t tell you how many times I have heard, “Daddy, I won’t be long,” as they carry fifteen outfits into a dressing room. They come out thirty minutes later empty-handed, nothing works. Did you know that God has a set of clothes picked out for you and for me? When you put on the Lord’s clothes, you will look your best, be your best, and find the best for your life. His clothes will protect you from the power of evil. Satan wants you to look your worst, do your worst, be your worst, and find the worst, but when you wear God’s clothing you get protected. So, today, when you go out, put on the belt of truth, the breastplate of righteousness, the shoes of peace, the shield of faith, the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. You will be dressed for success.
